Audiowiesel releases 'Hammered Acoustic Guitar' for Kontakt 5

Audiowiesel has released Hammered Acoustic Guitar (HAG), a Kontakt-format sample library and the result of "playing" an Ibanez AE acoustic guitar with drum sticks and brushes. In order to make it sound punchy and powerful, Audiowiesel used two steel strings and tuned them to same pitch. This way it was achieved to maintain a slight modulation of the sound, a beat frequency.

Next to regular single notes (up to 9x round robin and 7 velocity layers) Audiowiesel also created an extensive section dedicated to effects and percussion. Especially the FX content is heavily processed and offers great material for musical sound design.

3 Different Versions

HAG Core contains all main patches, like sticks and brushes. These patches are great for harmonic rhythms, accents or melodic lines. As a special feature there is a slider included called 'magic'. This additional sound layer enhances overtones and presence.

HAG FX & Percussion: In this package you find all percussive sounds and the FX section. This is intended for spicing up your tracks with fresh sounds. Besides that, Audiowiesel has implemented a freely playable MIDI gate for rhythmical effects and the opportunity to add depth and space by using the modwheel.

HAG Full Bundle is what the title says. You get everything that is included in 'Core' and 'FX & Percussion' and more. Audiowiesel has created some special multis which make use of both sample contents.
